Damian Martin

I'll probably cop some flack for starting this thread but stuff it, the guy is worthy of it. His defence tonight was inspirational, I was up off my chair with his efforts.

Heres a guy that had his face smashed in and jaw broken a month ago, cops a whack and loses wiring 3 nights ago and then comes out and plays a huge role in tonight win against the 36ers.

You can't put a price on this guys worth, the Cats are a far greater team with him on the court.

Train, the guy is a gun, he is humble and that alone makes I'm likeable. Automatic game changer type, gives you '90's import' type difference. Lucky to have him.

I do think enough seasons have passed from where "he never complains" that the commentators can't seriously say it anymore. It was true once. It's true anymore.

Damo is not leaving Perth. You can take that to the bank.

Matty is about to have baby #2 and is settled so can't see that happening. Nor can I see Damo leaving.

Terribly unsettling for toddlers moving cities, having to make new friends at creche, packing up all the toys and little golden books, changing finger paint suppliers. Bugger dad who wants to go play for a coach he respects and trusts.

re: Damian Martin

Why would anyone in their right mind leave a super club like Perth which has a guranteed 12 thousand a night turnout, is a playoffs guaranteed team every year for a team like the Hawks who could go under at any minute?

re: Damian Martin

Yeah Per suks, everyone is going to leave because they pay everyone too much money and cheat
and because the refs are all on the take
and because Gleeson sucks and only wun cos he had Ennis...

Maybe the above could be permanently added to the Hoops footer, to save the hassle of posting it in every thread.

re: Damian Martin

I wonder if his Dream Team value has dropped... I'll have to grab him next Round.

Truly awesome and it made me think that yes he has been injured but surely with performances like that he has to still be in defensive player of the year conversation?

I hope Damo wins the Damien Martin award for the 6th year in a row... Or so that next year?

Gleeson was the one who gave DAMO a spot on the boomers team, they have a great relationship.

Yeah it's a bit like last season when someone guaranteed Worthington wasn't going anywhere as well.

what's that about 12000 a night turnout? crowd looked pretty ordinary on tv last night from what I could see. if last season was 12000 then last night was lucky to be 8000

Wonder if Lemanis taking Bullets role will open up for Bevo who will be out of contract to slide into the Boomers gig he has been dreaming about for 10 years instead of coaching the constant threat of voluntary administration Hawks..

Anon #569055, TV doesnt pick up the top 2/3 of the arena, the stadium holds about 14,000 if they open up the heavens at the 'away' end, most people sit high as they are the cheaper seats. when we moved from Challenge the Cats offered members 'equivelant' seats which were shit, the seats you see on the telecast are about $100 each

Perth haven't had a game under 10k this season. Average about 10500..., no where near 8000. Still a great number considering the prices they are charging and the games are live in fox and NBL live app

re: Damian Martin

Definitely a thin crowd last night IMO. Surely not 10k? I'm not saying it was Crocs-like, there were still plenty of people there, but lots of empty seats scattered throughout.
To be expected in the Xmas season I guess.

Never been a guy like him. Has long arms but it's his sheer determination that makes him what he is.

If he doesn't win DPOTY again something is wrong because he is in God tier.
